MY SMILE Of LIES
I hide behind my smile
Not letting anyone see
My dark emotions
The tortured side of me
I know you wonder
I see it in your eyes
But I can sometimes hide
Behind my smile of lies
The pain is so strong it has me numb
So I cut myself deep in the vein
Not wanting to ask for help
Since I’m the one to blame
I silently begin to cry
Right in front of you
You ask me if I’m okay
But once again, I smile for you
One day I was almost gone
And you saw the scars on my wrist
You began to question once again
But I just added another smile to the list
Then the day came
When you found me on the floor
My pulse and life was gone
But my smile was able to hide the truth once more
By the time you finally got help
It was a smile too late
You learned to see a smile
And feel nothing but hate
Hate for not being there
For believing my smile of lies
For not taking the time to notice
That my smile was nothing but silent cries
Smile because it’s contagious
Smile because it’s healing
Smile because it makes people wonder
What you’re thinking.
Smile innocently to hide the guilt
Smile mischievously to make others skeptic.
Smile lovingly to butter up the retaliator
Smile dreamingly to make others lovesick.
Smile because it’s raining
Smile because you’re tickled.
Smile because you’re happy
Smile because you’re idle.
Smile affectionately to show your love
Smile smugly as you’ve done your work.
Smile pleadingly to get what you want
Smile forgivingly to pardon the jerk.
Smile because you’re confused
Smile because you’re lost without a plan.
Smile because you want to
And smile just because you can!
When I See You Smile...
I saw something today that made my head spin.
You looked at me and had a grin.
It was a smile so perfect I almost cried.
Without that smile I would have died.
Your smile saved me from the hole I was making.
Your smile so bright and simply breath-taking.
I can't help but smile myself when I think about you.
I'm so glad your here to see me through.
All the pain your smile breaks me out of.
I can't help it, I'm so in love
